LIVING FOR JESUS
Jesse M. Hendley
Friends, do you realize that as we live for the Lord a
transformation is taking place in our lives everyday?
Or, if we fail to live for Him, there is a
transformation. It is either downward or it is upward.
It is more angelic or it is more devilish, one of the
two. Down here on earth there may be a poor, little
old woman, in her lonely cottage, suffering greatly,
wrinkled and haggard with age; but over in the glory
she will have the face of an angel, bright and
beautiful. The reason is that in spite of her
circumstances, she is rich toward God, rich in her
spirit. She lives the CHRIST-like life. She has faith

esteemeth one day above another, and another esteemeth
every day alike. Let each man be fully assured in his
own mind. He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto
the Lord. He that eateth, eateth unto the Lord, for he
giveth God thanks. He that eateth not, to the Lord he
eateth not, and giveth not thanks. For none of us
liveth to himself, and none dieth to himself. For
whether we live, we live unto the Lord. Whether we
die, we die unto the Lord. Whether we live, therefore,
or die, we are the Lord's. For to this end, Christ
died and lived again, that he might be the LORD, both
of the dead and of the living."
